Pico de Loro Getaway – Summer 2012 #2

From the moment we bought this deal on-line, everyone was already excited. The photos we’ve seen from the website were too promising, something that we don’t wanna miss!

So April 28 came and we all woke up a little early that day for our trip. It was a long drive going South, taking on a lot of uphill and some downhill. A lot of times along the way, I was holding my breath and controlling the wheels on top of my head. Yeah, (you can imagine) that kind of ride. After that much anticipation and waiting we reached the entrance gate. I thought we were already there, but no, not yet, it’s another 5-minute (or so) drive going up and down again before we finally arrived at the door of the Pico Sands Hotel. Finally after 3.5 hours!

It was 12 noon and we were early for the check-in, but we decided to take it and pay the extra charge of 500 so that we could relax and freshen up. Then from there, we had buffet late lunch at Country Club resto . We were told that there was no ala-carte menu and learned quite late after eating that they have it for snack (pasta, pizza and the like). Reese could have taken on that na lang sana…anyways, we didn’t avail the buffet again for dinner because the food was just average.

Right after eating, we walked a little exploring the area and then, let the little girl play at Club Pico. By 4pm, we prepared for late afternoon swimming, when the sun can no longer hurt us! No photo of the swimming as hubby left the camera at the hotel as nobody will look after it.

I would like to note how beautiful the place is, the photos in the website were not lying. I love the scenery, the all-glass church on top of the mountain, the shore (even though the sand is not white), the pool, our room, and even the shuttle ride that took us from one place to the other. I wish I could live there…I'll let the photos show you why :)

hubby's favorite thing to take photo of at the beach

Reese had a blast, she had fun swimming and of course playing twice at Club Pico. As for me, I consider this vacation as the most relaxing one so far. I enjoyed swimming, lounging, taking some photos and strolling around the place. My favorite spot would be the church and its view deck. That’s something I would really like to have back here in Manila, an all-glass church with overlooking of the beach. J

Hubby was kidding me that if ever I got married again, that I should do it there. It is as if we’re not “the couple” right?! So I gave him one of those stares and said, “Ano daw? Eh with whom kaya?!” Ang sarap tuktukan! :p
